Narcos: Rise of the Cartels, a brutal tactical turn-based game based on Narcos, the multi-award-winning Netflix series, is available now on Steam.
Combining turn-based tactical strategy with brutal real-time combat, Narcos: Rise of the Cartels follows the first season of the award-winning TV series through two distinct campaigns that offer vastly different perspectives on the infamous 80s drug war. Should you help build the Medellin Cartel’s rapidly expanding narcotics empire under the watchful gaze of El Patrón, or fight against them tooth and nail alongside Agent Murphy as the DEA?
Each campaign has its own iconic locations taken directly from the show, from Colombia’s impenetrable sun-drenched jungles to the damp streets of Medellin itself. Recognisable characters from the series are ready and waiting to back you up – and each have their own unique perks to help turn the tide in battle.
Turn-based gameplay is fast, brutal, and satisfying, but just like the show itself, actions in Narcos: Rise of the Cartels have lasting consequences. If you lose a member of your team during battle, they’ll be gone for good. Moving one unit per turn, players will need to act quickly and change their tactics on the fly to stay in control of the battlefield.
In Narcos: Rise of the Cartels, there are no right choices. Join the Cartel and see your empire expand or fight with the DEA and stop the spread of terror – either way, there’ll be tough choices along the way.
